ERCuNi (NA67) is used for gas metal and gas tungsten arc welding. Can also be used by oxy-fuel welding of 70/30, 80/20, and 90/10 copper nickel alloys. A barrier layer of nickel alloy 610 is recommended prior to overlaying steel with GMAW weld process.

Note: Other shielding Gases may be used for Tig welding. Shielding gases are chosen taking Quality, cost, and Operability into consideration.
Note: Both agglomerated and fused fluxes can be used for submerged arc welding.
Note: The chemical composition of the flux mainly affects the chemistry of the weld metal and consequently its corrosion resistance and mechanical properties.
